ARBOR DAY IN SOUTH AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle — 20 April 1889

ARBOR DAY IT* SOUTH AUS TRALIA, At tbe meeting of the Central branch of the Agricultural Bureau Mr. J; E. Brown, Con- ' eervator of Forests, read a report on this sub ject, in whicb he suggested tbe establishment of an ' Arbor Day' in South Australia. He said it seemed appropriate enough that South M Australia should inaugurate for Australasia'an M annual holiday for such a purpose, aa by the . ^M wise policy, forethought, and liberality of the ^H Government during the paBt 12 years, our sue- ^i cess as foresters had become fairly prominent. Arbor Days were now national events in other countries, especially in America and Canada. Apart altogether from the economical part of the question or the sesthetic effects upon the appearance of trees upon the bare portion of our country, the establishment of a compre- j henfiiye system of Arbor Days could not but exercise a most beneficial influence upon the moral character of the risiDg generation, and it was mainly through it that the good t...

THE BRIDGES. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle — 20 April 1889

THE BRIDGES. A visit to the Albert bridge late in the after noon showed that the violence of the flood had expended itself in washing down a portion of the banks, while other large slices had been undermined, and seemed to need but little persuasion to follow their predecessors. At the Company's-bridge ample evidence re mained to show the force of the water. Here also the banks were broken] and but for a couple of 'breaks' some of the bouses on the south side might have found a subsidence near their foundations, an undesirable thing. Por tions of the bankB of the Torrens had here, aB everywhere else, given way, while tree trunks lay stranded many feet above the river surface. Portions of the park fence lay broken, and several fine willows growing on the banks had been uprooted and carried away. The large open drain in East Adelaide which empties itself into the river near Eighth- avenue was broken in places, though still serviceable; while many of the 'avenue' householders are suffe...

IN THE HILLS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle — 20 April 1889

IN THE HILLS. Our Biidgewater correspondent writes :— Tuesday proved a terrible day in this district. Cox's Creek, which finds itB source in the neighborhood of Mount Lofty and is augmented in its course by numerous small tributaries, recorded a height pronounced by the oldest residents to be the highest in their recollection. About 10 o'clock p.m. the flood had attained itB greatest dimensions, the usual channel proving quite inadequate to carry off the enormous volume of muddy, turbid water, The gardens situated on the banks of the creek suffered considerable damage, in most intances through land elips and the removal of soil and garden produce, while tbe receding flood left a deposit of eilt, logs, and other debris. The bridge which spans Cox's Oreek at a spot known as the Deanery was partially destroyed, about half the structure Bubsiding, so that traffic will be suspended for eome time in that direction. Footbridges, garden utensils, and huge logs helped to swell the procession...

GLEN OSMOND CREEK. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle — 20 April 1889

GLEN OSMOND OREEK. This creek, which proved sotroublesomeduring the January rains, has not done much damage during this week. A fence or two have been washed away on the course near the hills, and at the newly-erected drain running through Mr. Fisher's property the stone and mortar have been torn away and deposited along the creek. The creek overflowed its banks at the bridge croBBing the Fullarton road in front of the same gentleman's property, and fears were entertained that it would carry away the stonework that the corporation had been building on either side of the bridge. The overflow rushed down Fullarton- road, and the paths and road, and in several c&ssb it reached the fences, and damaged the guttering, although all the footbridges are quite safe and sound. At the Fountain Inn the creek was joined by a stream coming down the Glen Osmond-road, and the increased volume made ite way to the park lands. The Burnside District Council are just now attending to the water-ta...

PAYNEHAM AND PARADISE. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle — 20 April 1889

PAYNEHAM AND PARA.BISE. Most exaggerated reports of the damage done by tbe floodwaters of the Torrens to Pajneham and its divisions were in circulation, while ciedence was also given to tbe statement that several bridges wtre washed away. The facts Bbow that the only bridge demolished by the water pressure and debris with which the the river was choked was at Felixstow, where the old wocden structure which bad done duty since 1873 waB swept away between 1 and 2 o'clock on Wednesday morning. Before this occurred, however, the imprisoned flood — forced back upon itself by reason of tbe space beneath tbe bridge being choked with trees and every Bpecies of rubbish that could be carried along a waterway— had risen high above its banks and flooded the neighboring gardens, inundating the houses of residents and doing considerable damage. The crossing known as Fourth Creek-bridge is also some what damaeed. though still passable for traffic but beyond thiB tbe other bridges are safe. The who...

Mr. Richard Speight, Chairman of the Yictorian Railway Board, has received from the directors of the Midland Railway Company, England, an offer to return to the service of the company which he left to accept his present position.

WIRTH BROTHERS' CIRCUS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle — 20 April 1889

WIRTH BROTHERS' CIRCUS. Whether it be under the title of hippodrome, grand e cirque, or New York equescurriculum, a real good circus is always welcome both to young and old. The delights of 'spangles and sawdust' are certainly great with youth, but they linger in the memories of those of older growth, and there are many in the ranks of paterfamilias who, while offer ing to ' take the youngsters round [to Eee the circus,' have* just as strong an inclination to eee the performance as the . youngsters themselves. Wirth Brothers, if we remember aright, have visited Adelaide on previous occasions, but they have never had so powerful a combination of artists, both human acd equine, as the troupe with which they opened in their spacious pavilion in Wakefield etreet on Thursday night. They were to have made their opening on Wednesday, but were prevented by the rain. On Thursday, how ever, they had a full attendance of spec tators, and the management had paid due attention to the comfort of ...

The peace ful acd unanimous initiation of a measure of representative government in which the inpnarchial traditions of 25 centuries suddenly made way for the exercise of the popular will is simply unique. After searching the world for models of government they have adopted a scheme which will come into practical operation next year, and in the administration of this constitution the example of the Democratic institutions of the Aua tralian colonies cannot but be useful.
